I previously had a Parasound 2250. 250w per channel. some people like 'em. Absolutely chalk and cheese, as they say.

Hi Nirvana.
Yeah.... circumstances (no longer single, no mancave).
I was thinking to just give the Hypex amps to my mate who built them, though he just bought a pair of Manley monoblocks.
Thanks for the link.

Those Hypex amps are to die for , it's a pity few realise how good they really are . Keep 'em I say .

Hi Adie, lovely amps you have there. Maybe just a suggestion to help the sale along: some more info may help, like some more more detailed pics from the inside and outside of the amps, as well as how they operate (like connecting, switching on and any volume control, does any of those buttons and knob connect to anything) since this is a custom build and its not something that people can Google. Also, have you measured the AC power consumption on these? It should be very efficient and ECO/Eskom friendly.

There are no better 'keepers' than proper mono power-amps IMHO and that is also why my Bel Canto REF1000 are staying. If I did not have these, I certainly would have bought yours. GLWS.

Thanks Wolla.
The knobs do nothing as you will see below. They are simply sturdy 1mil thick chassis. Could have fitted both into 1, but isolation of channels and all that.
And we thought the chassis may be handy as heatsinks, however these never get hot and it is recommended to leave them on 24/7 as they do sound better "warmed" up.
They consume very little, deliver a lot.
power switch at rear-
power switch under the front






Highlights
Unprecedentedly low distortion over frequency and power range
Unprecedentedly low output impedance
Very low noise
Neutral and transparent reproduction: “Neither dirt nor fairy dust”

Features
Fully discrete signal path – no IC’s
Differential audio input
Flexible power supply arrangement
24A current capability
Extensive, microprocessor-controlled error protection

Applications
No-compromise power amp module for audiophile DIY projects
Active speakers, standalone power amps

Operation is based on a non-hysteresis 5 order self-oscillating
control loop taking feedback only at the speaker output.

I tried pasting data from a pdf/converted pdf but it's beyond me. Here's a link.

Just the Hypex amps left.
To keep, or not to keep- that is the question? :thinking:

Keep them Adie .

https://darko.audio/2014/09/nad-masters-series-m22-hypex-ncore-for-the-rest-of-us/

https://www.stereophile.com/content/nad-masters-series-m22-power-amplifier

https://www.tnt-audio.com/ampli/hypex_dlcp_n400_e.html

Consider the NAD M22 , and think that you have that , in monoblocks with each having it's own PSU .

From the stereophile M22 measurements :
" Fig.4 indicates that the THD+N reaches 1% (our usual definition of clipping) at 340Wpc into 8 ohms (25.3dBW). Fig.5 shows that the M22 clips at 400Wpc into 4 ohms with both channels continuously driven (23dBW), while with just one channel driven (fig.6), the amplifier clips at 570W (24.55dBW). Even into 2 ohms, the NAD M22 managed to output 700W (22.4dBW) with just one channel driven. "

..... and they sound like music , drive anything like they're not there .

^ I agree. Keep them if you really, really like them. I’m certain that you’ll miss them some time soon and where are you going to find them again?
